These motorists must have had to do a double take when they came across a cow hopelessly tangled in a section of barbed wire fencing.
We don’t know how long the poor thing had been stuck, but she must have been thrashing around trying to free herself, because this is how they found her:
She’s going to have the neck crick of her life when she wakes up in the morning.
Animals in distress are unpredictable, but these guys didn’t hesitate to help. They didn’t have the heart to just ride away with her lying there like that, with no other rescuers in sight. For all we know, other motorists may very well have seen her and continued on their way, deciding it wasn’t worth the risk of getting hurt themselves.
But these men saw an opportunity to rescue a helpless and otherwise doomed animal and decided to take action.
Even after they get her hooves free, she barely moves. No, her neck’s not broken; she’s probably just exhausted by the whole ordeal and so stunned by this turn of events she doesn’t know what to do.
But these guys don’t leave her until she’s back on her feet, no doubt grateful for these selfless heroes.
Watch the heartwarming rescue unfold in the clip below, and share to spread thanks to these and all the other Good Samaritans out there.
